Hi all - self intro

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Our family (of 5) has been looking for a pickup for quite a while. We live near Walla Walla, WA. I set out to find a very specific truck:

* Used, but still in decent mechanical shape.

* Dodge Ram 2500 (3/4 ton)

* Cummins turbo diesel

* 4x4

* Manual transmission

* Quad/Extended or Crew cab

* Working cruise control + A/C

* Tow package

* Something I could afford.

I was watching nearly a dozen sites and RSS feeds for online ads. Finally found a cosmetically damaged 2000 model with 170k miles on it for sale down in Utah. I had my friend check it out and then purchase it for me. Last week I drove it from Salt Lake City, Utah to our home in Walla Walla, WA.

On the way back, I stopped by Caldwell, ID to see my friend Paul. While I was showing off my new purchase to him, Muddy came up and introduced himself. He then told me about this forum and gave me several tips about my new truck.

So, here I am... now ready to listen and learn about diesels. This is our first diesel vehicle.

Here's a pic of our family: http://ashclan.org/node/79
